Good news for soap opera fans -- beloved shows All My Children and One Life to Live are coming back to television for a limited 10-week run this summer on Oprah Winfrey's cable network OWN.
OWN has acquired the first 40 half-hour episodes of both shows, which will run Monday through Thursday beginning Monday, July 15. All My Children will air at 1 p.m. and One Life to Live will air at 3 p.m.
And it turns out OWN has a very good reason for bringing back the shows -- Oprah herself is a fan!
"These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan," Erik Logan, president at OWN, tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN."
Both shows are currently running on the Online Network, after getting canceled by ABC.
